  • working with large building portfolio owners to identify the key barriers in the decision making process for EE measures and how they can be overcome
  • with the goal to get commitments from a wide range of decision makers to commit to launching and implementing a project within the EEB framework

This project builds on the outcomes of the first EEB project, which stated that a 40% of energy efficiency improvements can be achieved with a 5-year payback time, and additional 12% with 10-year payback… the second project aims at realizing these opportunities, working with a wide range of market actors
